Are you sick and tired of your own shit?

I’m sharing this with you because we all do this! It’s called being human. It doesn’t matter how “woke” you are or how much healing or self-growth work you’ve done, there’s always going to be a self-imposed limitation or block. New level, new devil.

This week has felt like a month and I can honestly say I am not the same woman I was on Sunday. 

The barriers and limitations that were holding me back from fully claiming my power are rapidly falling away. The rose colored glasses I was viewing life from have been lifted and suddenly everything is clearer. 

I used to think change took time, but this week I’ve realized how wrong that is. I now know change can happen in a split second. The second we decide no more. Never again. Enough is enough. The moment we get sick and tired of our own shit, and decide to do something about it. 

So, what happened this week? What was the catalyst for the walls crumbling? 

I started looking at the life I want to live. The one I crave deep down in my soul. The one I can envision clearly and wish for under every New Moon. A life filled with abundance, unconditional love, success, marriage, children and a home. 

And then I’ve been looking at why I’m not living it. 

And not why filled with spiritual arrogance – “I need to practice more gratitude” “I need to use more positive affirmations” or the worst “you need to see it to believe it” 

Look, it’s not that I don’t believe in those things, I do, but they can hold us back from taking responsibility for our lives. 

This week I’ve been taking responsibility. Brutally. I’ve been looking at ALL of my bad habits, faults and how I limit myself. It’s been humbling, hard and eye opening. 

It’s not easy to sit in our own shit. Really sit in it. Face our own limitations and be honest how we’re the problem in our lives. It’s much easier to project blame or make excuses. 

I’m sharing this with you because we all do this! It’s called being human. It doesn’t matter how “woke” you are or how much healing or self-growth work you’ve done, there’s always going to be a self-imposed limitation or block. New level, new devil. 

And until we can remove our rose colored glasses those self-imposed limitations will control our lives. 

They’re also very tricky – you may not even be aware that it’s happening. I know I wasn’t! 

The invitation today is to begin exploring this. Imagine a ball of yarn and right now we’re pulling on one thread so the ball of yarn can unwravel. At the middle of the ball the reason why you’re holding yourself back will exist – what is your why?

Hint, hint… it’s usually rooted in an old wound. I’m not worthy. I don’t deserve success. I don’t belong. Fear of being seen or abandoned. Fear of success or failure. 

Also, think of the “why” like a Russian doll and keep asking yourself why. Each time you ask yourself why, you’ll be able to get deeper to the root. 

Once you can get clear on the why change can happen. The walls of self-imposed limitations can begin to crumble and you can become free from what’s been holding you back. 

This is the conversation we’re having in The Revolutionary Woman Sisterhood and something we’ll be exploring in Sweden in May. 

And I’m always here for you. Feel free to respond to below if you need help with this.

Sending you all so much love today, 

Xo, 

Emily
